DEX FLIX'S FILM REVIEW "CANDYMAN" 2021  

Candyman continues its story from the originally released1992 film with Tony Todd. We're set in the present times, as we delve into the backstory on how this character gave birth. New cast features the likes of Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as "Anthony", Teyonah Parris as "Brianna" and Colman Domingo as "William".

A Nia DaCoasta production and this for me was a great film from the visuals to the referencing back to the original as well. Got to love the knowledge that is exposed to the viewers from Mr Peele. 

 

Personal Rating 8/10 - | Critics Rating (IMDd) - 8.3/10

DEX FLIX'S FILM REVIEW "SUMMER DAYS, SUMMER NIGHTS" 2021 

Set in the 80's this film is an American comedy and drama about the young enjoying their summer time with sexual chemistry between each character.

Director Edward Burns builds up the cast's story well and by the end of it you're rooting for them all for that sweet fairytale ending.

DEX FLIX'S FILM REVIEW "THE SUICIDE SQUAD" 2021  

The rebooted edtion of this DC film as we see how the crazy gang were assembled. Unlike the 2016 version there is no Joker in sight but they have done well in the casts of wacky characters. 

Love what Director James Dunn did with the angles and wasn't expecting the gory detail which for DC was needed. For Superhero fans this is a one to watch.

Personal Rating 7.5 - | Critics Rating (IMDd) - 7.4/10

DEX FLIX'S FILM REVIEW "JUNGLE CRUISE" 2021 

Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt star in this Indiana Jones style quest for a special gem that can save the world from health benefits but like any quest the bad guys aren't far away to trying to foil their ambitions.

Good family film with charm and comedy for all.

Starring Christina Milian who plays the character "Erica", recently heart broken from her fiancé and having a career meltdown. Her best friend persuades her to take a break herself time to heal and find meaning to love again. 

Also featuring the eye candy for the ladies Sinqua Walls as "Caleb" who plays ex's brother which might ending up being too close to home. If you want an easy watch with a few sing alongs then this is for you.

DEX FLIX'S FILM REVIEW "RUROUNI KENSHIN - THE FINAL" 2021 

The third instalment of this kung fu action movie, where Kenshin and his fellow comrades face their hardest battle, as his brother in law Enishi Yukishiro vows to take their revenge.

I was impressed by the visuals taken by the director Keishi Ohtomo as he displayed artistry shown by each character, as well as keeping the viewer intrigued by the story. I hadn't realised when first stumbling across this movie that their was a trilogy so will check out the previous movies too.

If you love martial arts or action this your ticket.

Personal Rating 7.2/10 - | Critics Rating (IMDd) - 7.3/10

DEX FLIX'S FILM REVIEW "FATHERHOOD" 2021 

A heartfelt and comedy feel from Kevin Hart, as he plays a single Father who has to try and bring up his daughter on his own. 

Pressure from from his close friends and family are questioning is he capable of coping during this turn of events.

Personal Rating 7.5/10 - | Critics Rating (IMDd) - 6.6/10

 

DEX FLIX'S FILM REVIEW "SPACE JAM - NEW LEGACY" 2021 

New rules, new characters same game and that is to win. We follow Lebron James as he has to find a way to win his son back from the evil genius "AI-G" played by Don Cheadle.

It was nice to see the old Loony Toons at their old tricks but i think this one might go over the head of most youngsters.

Personal Rating 5/10 - | Critics Rating (IMDd) - 4.4/10

DEX FLIX'S FILM REVIEW "A QUIET PLACE 2" 2021 

Back for the second instalment we follow a closer look on the children's journey and discover there's more survivors than first realised.

Will there ben an end to this nightmare? The only way to find that out is be quiet and survive to tell the tale.
